Date: Thursday 14 July 2022
This talk will be a friendly introduction to braid groups and the representation theory of these groups.
Braid groups are one of those objects that show up in many different areas of mathematics.
This talk will focus on the topological intuition and applications of braid group theory to knot theory and some quantum computing.
This talk will be held in a hybrid format - a live event in the Red Centre, which will be livestreamed to an online audience.
